Kopis’s COO, Kevin Wentzel has been named to Leadership Greenville’s Class 46. The Chamber’s flagship leadership program is designed to help develop informed, committed and qualified leaders for Greenville County. By taking an intensive look into the issues affecting Greenville County, Leadership Greenville prepares and motivates participants to provide quality, dynamic leadership within the area. Since the program began in 1973, there have been over 2000 participants. Many alumni have served in key leadership positions within their businesses and organizations, as well as city council, county council, school board, members of Congress and judges.
After graduating from Penn State University in 2006, Wentzel began his career as a reporting developer for TetraData, a small, Greenville-based company specializing in the educational market. In 2011, he joined Kopis as a developer.
At Kopis, Wentzel came full circle back to his first love, specializing in business intelligence. He recently was promoted to Chief Operations Officer and is responsible for making sure that the company runs efficiently and profitably, that they exceed client expectations by delivering high-quality, high-value solutions, and that they stay true to the budget guidelines, time frames and quality control that they set with clients.
In short, he uses business intelligence to make sure that the Kopis team works well together. He has been using technology to support others in his position for years, and he believes that his experience building data systems from the ground up enriches his management style and helps him communicate with his team more effectively.
